Yeah had my eye on those but they've been sold so back to the drawing board lol
Well I won!! Fuck you rounded Mani nut!!! It was no match for my nut extractor bits once the engine was out lol!
Have now made it so that the Mani will come off in half hour in future lol
Will fit the intercooler tomorrow !
Said nut!! Grrr
Nut tools they cut into rounded nuts! Fucking awesome buy!
them sockets are ace mate. countless number of times they saved me lol
Looking good..always had a soft spot for s12s
Final stages now.
would love to come and see this project, where in west mids are you based?
i need to fit a intercooler to my S12
Based nr coventry mate youre welcome. Will hopefully be at awesomefest. At the moment it's had the t25 and intercooler fitted but is still misfiring and seriously puzzling us.
Just want my car back
i'd move that rad away from the slam panel if i were you.looks like it will end up rubbing through.
did it have the missfire before doing the turbo conversion??i know this will sound obvious but if not then,go back over everything youve removed/moved or adjusted.
if they are new plug leads,try the old ones back on,if you changed the cambelt,check its timed up correctly etc...
looks good btw...
EDIT:is that an icv pipe coming off the manifold thats left disconnected??not sure whether these have a maf or afm,but if that were the case you'd be taking in unmetered air through that pipe,hence crappy running.not a definate fix,but something to look into.
Looking good Shilpa!
Right ive done some trouble shooting, 100% no ignition at no one cylinder!, the car had developed a random missfire where it would drop to 3 cylinders for a few seconds 2 weeks before i did the conversion.
I have got the new outlet pipe welded see new pic all pipes have been connected. new pic.
i changed all the spark plugs to ones out of my s15 so i know they work.
Number 1 is not firing so not sure if its spark, or fuel related. going to check for a spark tomorro grrrrr
Riiiight I have been literally too frustrated with not having my car and losing it to a mysterious illness.
Anyway, it has now had the misfire fixed only to find that the turbo was not viable so had to scope out a new one...
Word of mouth is amazing, chatting to a few at the Drift-Inc odc sesh on Sunday and Ali (hope it's spelled right) volunteered his t28! Awesome and relief are not good enough to explain how I feel lol
So now, I'm having a t28 instead if the t25.... I'll keep updates after the fitting this week lol
A friends ratty old S12 had a T28 and fmic and holy crap did it move
Was the misfire due to the coil not grounding on the wing properly perchance?
coil was fucked in general, the multimeter showed a voltage drop from 12v to 6v when cranking so it was not amplifying anything.
Aye, they seem to be the favourite thing to break on S12', Ive replaced three
was a nightmare to track down one! finally got a MSD coil off s13eater for cheap as chips! guy is sound!
T2 and 25 are fucked! look how much oil was on the 25 just from running it at idle! lol
need the spiggot for the 28 now so i can connect the cold air intake.
This car is doing my nut. Still not working...
60 psi in cylinder 1 missfire found .
Soooooooooo want an S12, currently lined up to buy one in a few weeks as long as the soarer sells. Fingers crossed!
